It can be easy to overlook Portugal in the vast range of idyllic and exotic European destinations, but it’s worth remembering that not long ago, this country was not only the focal point of Europe, but also the center of the world itself. Lisbon, as its capital, was home to the first, longest and arguably most influential empire in modern times: the birthplace of the Age of Discovery, stomping ground of great seafarers and conquistadors, a dynamic hub of global trade and innovation. The stunning Capital of Portugal, built over 7 hills that overlook the Tagus river, Lisbon is a city that blends traditional heritage with striking modernism.  Come discover the land of Discoveries, in a city that offers rich and varied history, lively nightlife and a warm and friendly year round climate.
